This is the digital systems age in radar and maybe more importantly an increasingly commercial age. We see MIMO and STAP processing become practical through spin-off from digital communications. Communications technology has made practical small radars that penetrate walls in buildings resolving people within and at the same time enables large ballistic missile defence arrays. Around the world there are feverish efforts to harness radar technique for increased security, as a commercial, not military enterprise.

This lecture will deal with these very modern evolutions on the exchange boundary between communications and radar, outlining their physical principles, illustrating the technologies and consequences for radar architectures. It provides an opportunity to get up to speed in modern thinking on digital radar technologies and applications across a broad sector.
